Generally, Chinese people misunderstand what American foreign policy on trade relationships would be if Ron Paul were running the show. Americans misunderstand, as well. If RP were President, the United States Government would get almost entirely out of trade relations with every country. The only thing the Government would do is tax imports and exports. That's it.

All trade relationships would be done between American companies and individuals, and foreign countries. The only thing Gov would do would be to tax imports and exports. This is all that the Government IS AUTHORIZED to do, Constitutionally, in times of peace.

What would be the result? If Gov wanted more money, they would tax exports and imports more. If the taxes were too high, nobody could afford to do export/import. Gov would lose money because nobody was doing international trade because of the high tax rate. So, Gov would lower the tax rate so that trade would start again, and they would get some money.

What would happen because of this? Jobs would come back to America. Americans would get paid what they were worth. The Wal-mart import/export near-monopoly would end. WE THE PEOPLE would manufacture quality for ourselves, and maybe for the rest of the world. Best of all, America would become the most powerful nation in the world!
